Positive rivet prep


I am doing my first aircraft and have decided to try doing positive rivets. While I wait for them to arrive, I am finishing up the prep on the aircraft itself.

My question is: do I need to fill in the negative rivets before I can apply the positive rivet decals? I am using lines of rivets as there is no set to my specific model. Also, any tips or tricks for these would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

I would fill them otherwise the raised rivets will not be consistent as some will fail inside or the edge of the existing depressed rivets.
